The Regular Troughs come in a variety of sizes and these are the smallest of the trough range. These troughs are perfect for small gardens, roof terraces or balconies due to the fact that they are made from Glass Reinforced Plastic. This ensures they are strong, durable, frost proof, rust proof, yet also light weight, also because they are seamless the Regular Troughs have a very contemporary appearance and therefore look stunning in any garden or roof terrace space. Just add plants!
All GRP troughs are made from a mould and there are several standard sizes available, if you cannot see the size you are looking for please look at our Window Box Planters, Large Troughs and Extra Large Troughs or contact us for a quote on bespoke sizes. Each Regular Trough is handmade to order in our factory and it would depend on the size of the trough as to the thickness of the material used. This can range from 2 mm thick for the smaller troughs and window boxes to 10 mm thick for the extra large troughs. Additional strengthening is also used for larger troughs where necessary to ensure that they can hold the volume of soil or compost required sufficiently.
To make a continuous planting bed, all troughs can be cut out at the ends so that they can join together making long planting beds where necessary, to give seamless planting.
When planting up troughs approximately 25% of drainage media should be used and when planting up outside, ensure that each trough is slightly lifted off the ground to allow for free drainage.
All troughs are available in any RAL colour matt, satin, gloss, metallic or special effect finishes such a concrete effect. (see our effects page) Also these troughs can be made in company colours or for that extra special touch can have corporate logos added.
